Ferst Foundation
addresses the growing problem of children from low-income communities entering kindergarten without basic early literacy skills and school readiness. Quality, age-appropriate books are mailed monthly to the homes of children, birth to five, enrolled in our program – at no cost to the family – and parents receive supportive material that reinforces the importance of early learning and encourages them to read frequently with their children.
 
It seems so simple, but no other factor plays a more significant role in a child’s early educational success than books in the home and being read to from birth. Combine that with the fact that 61% of low income families do not have a single book in the home suitable for a child and the problem is obvious – and preventable!
